The Phases Of The Moon
I don’t exactly understand why, but
my new girlfriend won’t come indoors
after dark when she’s having her period.
When I ask her about it, she just murmurs
something about needing to live in harmony
with the phases of the moon. I’ve decided
to buy her a tent and good a sleeping bag
for her birthday, and an economy-sized box
of Stayfree Overnight Maxi Pads.
